Capsule Blue Origin

Jeff Bezos followed up his 11-minute flight to the edge of space with an extended press appearance in which he announced the gift of $100 million each to CNN political contributor Van Jones and chef Jose Andres. “They can give all to their own charity or they can share their wealth. It’s all up to them,” Bezos said.  “Sometimes dreams come true,” Jones said, adding that “the headlines around the world should be, anything is possible if you believe.” Andres, who started a non profit to feed those affected by natural disasters, said, “This award itself cannot feed the world on its own, but this is the start of a new chapter for us.” Anderson Cooper, who has been anchoring CNN’s coverage of the flight of the Blue Origin spacecraft, said “quite a surprise. Obviously none of us knew anything about it.”

tulip shape columns hold the island 1 

Rising from the Hudson River, Little Island preens atop a bouquet of tulip-shaped columns.  Outside, it’s eye candy. Inside, a charmer, with killer views. Near 13th Street in Hudson River Park, is the architectural equivalent of a kitchen sink sundae, with a little bit of everything.  The park-within-the-park was conceived nearly a decade ago to replace Pier 54 on Manhattan’s West Side. In 1912, the R.M.S. Carpathia brought survivors of the Titanic to Pier 54. It had become a venue for outdoor concerts in recent years but started to crumble and had to be closed. Park officials approached Diller — his headquarters are in the neighborhood — and in turn Diller enlisted Thomas Heatherwick, the English designer and billionaire whisperer. New Yorkers may recall Heatherwick devised the Vessel at Hudson Yards.

 I Trust Facts

Is there a cure for disinformation, propaganda, and other offenses against the truth?   Twitter’s answer has been to add fact-checks to misleading statements, a move that has led to a showdown with President Donald Trump. While this fight has been framed as an issue of free speech, ancient Greek philosophers, who worried deeply about what “fake news” meant for their own societies, would say it’s much more profound and more urgent than that. As technologically advanced as the fight between Twitter and Trump now seems, this dilemma is not new at all.
